A natural progression of the Grenade Launcher, the Cluster Bomb Launcher is a small-scale weapon of mass destruction for personal use. It is equipped with a holographic sight and an M4-like folding stock. Strangely, the weapon has a magazine, but fires a single projectile, followed by a reload. It looks like a box magazine variant of the Mako Hammerhead from Just Cause (1).
What it does is shoot a grenade (same range as the standard grenade launcher, which is terrible) and when it lands it explodes into 6 additional grenades which all have the same blast radius as the first. It is capable of destroying a GV-104 Razorback in one shot. It is very powerful. It has 20 units of ammunition, when bought from the Black Market and has to be reloaded after every shot. Be careful - if you shoot a bomb at something too close, you may die. If you have to decide between the standard grenade launcher or the Cluster Bomb Launcher, choose the Cluster Bomb Launcher, as it is cheaper and more powerful and also better at destroying pretty much everything in one shot.
|Max ammunition (including the projectiles in the magazine):||20|
|Minimum number of shots to kill an elite soldier:||1|
|Minimum number of shots to kill a "grunt" (usual) soldier:||1|
